Families Are Nations - F.A.N is a Non-Funded Christian based community entity which was formed and officially registered with the Registrar of Societies in 2009. Since inception, FAN has been involved in various initiatives bordering on the importance of maintaining the family unit being the most vital component of all human establishments as originated by God.
FAN headquarters was first established in the Mapepe Farming block where vulnerable men, women and children were recruited under the FAN empowerment and rehabilitation program.
FAN now commands a membership of over five hundred located in outskirts of Lusaka namely Mapepe and Chamba Valley Farming Blocks, George, Mazyopa, Kamwala South and Chipata Compounds in Lusaka, Kafue, Chifubu and Sinia in Ndola and soon to open in the Eastern Province, Chipata.
In all these areas, the effects of broken families worsened by HIV/AIDS are prominent. The main forms of livelihood are casual employment which is insufficient to sustain families. Most children have had no opportunity to pursue necessary education partly due to the parent child missing link as a result of death and broken marriages. As a result, majority of the children are orphaned and unable to access education and vital care.
